BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Bridgewater-Raritan Regional Board of Education approved a resolution for a new demographers report to be done on the district in the coming months.

The study is part of the district's strategic planning for the future of the schools.

The board approved a resolution to hire Ross Haber and Associates, in the amount of $13,000, for a demographic and facility utilization study.

Board member Barry Walker said this new study will focus on the fact that a number of people move to Bridgewater for kindergarten, rather than just considering those who have lived in town since birth.

The report is expected to be good for five years once it’s done.

The board did an initial demographic study several years ago, but the number of students projected was lower than the actual current enrollment, so they are looking to do another one, particularly as part of the consideration for whether or not to move forward with full day kindergarten.
